The thermal behavior of the mesophase pitch is most relevant in the carbon technology. In the present paper, the behavior of a mesophase pitch prepared from a hydrogenated coal tar pitch was observed under a hot-stage microscope during the repeated heating and cooling. Although some coal tar pitches have been reported to be difficult for the hot-stage microscopy, the hydrogenation of the pitch allowed easy observation of its mesophase behavior.
